It feels like, if I want to leave him, I need to totally abandon all of the assets from the business and lose my investment in our land. Does anyone have any experience with this? I love my work so much but it is to the point that i am ready to choose my emotional well being over the business.
Separate the business from the emotional. You need legal help to figure out how this business can dissolve, be split, or one partner can buy the other one out. Get all options ready to present to this partner and have a business meeting in front of this lawyer.
The emotional break might just be you walking out the door.
Get out before you get even more entangled. Get your own place, a good lawyer, and consider it a fresh start.
Not to make this a long story but my husband and I got back together. He worked on my sons and with the decline of the economy and building industry (my field), I went back. We have been back together for 10 years now and I’m in the same unhappy, miserable situation I was before. I’ve been planning (with my sons pushing) to leave again. We own property with sizable equity and I refuse to just walk away. I have worked just as hard and don’t feel that he should get everything.
I’m sorry for what you are going through. Believe me I understand. I am just so tired of being unhappy
